ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsApple has been known for adding tools that benefit a user's health ever since the company launched the Health App with iOS 8. The company has doubled down on the same ethos with the introduction of the Apple Watch. The smartwatch has some nifty features that have been responsible for saving countless lives in the past. Now with iOS 13, Apple is introducing a new feature in the health app that lets users track the headphone volume. It works with Bluetooth headsets (MFi) and the health app will let users know if the volume of the music is too high. © Pexels This feature was not showcased at WWDC 2019 however we got a small preview of the upcoming feature. The health app on iOS devices will now be able to track volume levels and suggest users if the volume is too high and might damage their ears. Apple will use the prescribed WHO levels to determine if the volume levels are loud or not. According to WHO, sounds above the level of 85db is harmful to the ear which is also the same parameter set by Apple in the 'Health' app. Any volume levels lower than 85db is usually ok however previous research has suggested that prolonged exposure to sound levels below 85db can also be harmful to the human ear. What Can Be Improved? © MensXP From what we saw from the demo, the new feature doesn't entirely work as expected. Even though you can track your volume levels from a previous listening session in the Health app, there is no provision for listeners when they are actually listening to audio at high volume levels. The 'Health' app as of now does not notify users about potential ear damage when they are listening to loud music. You will have to manually check levels each time by going into the 'Health' app which can be a bit tedious if you really care about protecting your ears. © Apple It would have been useful if the 'Health' app would notify you if you are listening to music louder than the recommenced volume level when you're actually doing it rather than later. For example, if a user is listening to music louder than 85db for more than 30 minutes, the Health app could simply notify users with a warning. Of course, many audiophiles would find this notification annoying if it keeps coming up every 15 or 30 minutes, which is why Apple should also provide the option of turning this specific notification off or give the ability to mute it for an hour. Personally, I would like to get a warning while I'm listening to loud music, not after the damage is already done.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThemed parties can be exciting but exhausting at the same time, as dressing up can be big fun or a useless chore. But just like any other themed party that you've been to, there are always people who don't feel like dressing up at all. They make a statement by turning up in their PJs. To be fair, we've been in those scenarios too, haven't we? Turns out, Trevor Noah is just like us. via GIPHY For those of you who don't know, Trevor Noah is a South African comedian among other things, a writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and a television host for 'The Daily Show'. He's known to introduce satire in political commentary in his presentation. via GIPHY However, he clearly doesn't restrict the satire just to the show, as he extends it to life and sometimes, even the parties that he goes to. Trevor Noah made a statement about this by way of his outfit at the Met Gala 2019. Take a look: © Getty Images While it doesn't align with the theme of camp at all, it's still the most relatable outfit from this year's Met Gala probably. And here's why it stands out: The Met Gala is a fundraising event which is also otherwise known as 'fashion's biggest night out' wherein the most iconic looks are seen on celebrities each year. The Met Gala is organised by Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who with her team, meticulously prepares a guest list of all the people who should be invited to the Met. Each year, a powerful theme is set that the invitees have to keep in mind while choosing their outfit for the Met. This is no easy task, considering celebrities can easily be mocked for what they wear at the Met. The theme is central to the Met Gala. And then we have Trevor Noah, saying what he believes out loud and clear. © Getty Images
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOver the years, the Indian cricket team has seen numerous sides of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. His leadership skills saw Team India scaling new heights in international cricket. His batting prowess earned him the reputation of world's best finisher. His unorthodox wicket-keeping skills made him a nemesis for opposition batsmen from behind the stumps. Whenever the former Indian captain features for his side and comes out on the field, everyone, from commentators, pundits to fans, knows that something spectacular is just around the corner. If he misses out in one of the facets of the game, Dhoni makes sure he makes up for it in another. Such has been this man's reputation in the Indian team that his know-how of the game has allowed him to still take calls on the field (from DRS to placing the fielders) despite stepping down as captain. Dhoni's presence of mind was once again in full display during India's clash against New Zealand in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Westpac stadium in Wellington. Returning to the side after missing the fourth ODI, Dhoni was expected to bolster the middle-order in crisis situation - a new role where he has thrived lately. AP But, contrary to popular perception, Dhoni was bowled for a mere one run by Trent Boult's ripper of a delivery. While Dhoni couldn't do much with the willow, as Ambati Rayudu (90), Vijay Shankar (45) and Hardik Pandya (45) stepped up for India, the Jharkhand cricketer made up for it with his own unique way of wicket-keeping. It was the 37th over of the New Zealand's run-chase when James Neesham (44) went for a sweep shot and missed the line of Kedar Jadhav's loopy delivery. Hitting the pads, the ball tricked down the leg-side as Dhoni let out a loud appeal (for an LBW) which was soon backed by his teammates. Cleaver run-out of James Neesham by MS Dhoni is the turning point of game. What a great "Presence of Mind"! ð This is why we call #MSDhoni the X-factor of #TeamIndia. Congrats for 4-1 series victory. Mohammed Shami is the best bowler for India ð pic.twitter.com/2BuiDYmlbh — ARMAN Ø§Ø±ÙØ§Ù â®ï¸ (@arman_armu_) February 3, 2019 Watching the Indian cricketers engrossed in appealing, Neesham tried to capitalise by sneaking in a quick single. But, just as the left-hander got out of his crease, Dhoni with a quick reflex, picked the ball and fired it on the stumps. Referred to the third umpire, replays suggested that Dhoni caught Neesham out of the crease when the bails were dislodged. As soon as the decision was revealed on the big screen, Dhoni was congratulated by his teammates for his presence of mind. Later, his insane exploits in effecting Neesham's dismissal got the social media buzzing with cricket fans lauding the former Indian skipper for quick thinking. Never leave your crease with MS Dhoni behind the stumps! https://t.co/RoUp4iMpX6 — ICC (@ICC) February 3, 2019 That Run out by MS Dhoni!#TeamIndia #NZvIND pic.twitter.com/E4Vbn1KwhK — RVCJ Media (@RVCJ_FB) February 3, 2019 â â¬ â â¡ #MSDhoni â¬ â â¬ â No matter which direction the batsman may go, @msdhoni will find him, and run him out! ð#NZvIND — Star Sports (@StarSportsIndia) February 3, 2019 Ms dhoni 10years challenge ð¥ð#Dhoni #MSDhoni #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/FLPOcPFqEc — Lachu (@Msdlachu) February 3, 2019 Is Race ka Sabse Bada SIKANDAR Ms Dhoni....ð©ð#Dhoni You Are A Love #INDvNZ pic.twitter.com/MI33MG9LuH — Manya Kaka (@KakaManya) February 3, 2019 Lightning speed of Dhoni behind the stumpsð — Gaurav Kumar (@gauravalmora) February 3, 2019
